Test All Things

“Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days.” (Colossians 2:16) ——————– Blessed be God, we have a perpetual Sabbath in the person and work of Christ. See how Paul states this in Hebrews 4:9, “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.” While every other rest is disturbed this rest… Read More

The law of the Old Testament sabbath was clearly stated. “But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well… Read More

Delivered in Grove Chapel, Camberwell, 1851 – By Joseph Irons. ——————– “For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21) ——————– What an exchange! What a voluntary act of substitution! How marvellous! Yonder debtor visited by his chief creditor, who condescends to become a prisoner, and renders Himself liable to all his demands,… Read More

A young man named George Gorton, who lived at Stow-on-the-Wold, had been in great spiritual distress. Happening to come across William Gadsby’s The Perfect Law of Liberty, under God’s blessing he found the relief he sought in reading it. It was no preaching or sermon he heard, but the reading of this book. His soul was set at liberty, and after this glorious deliverance he was baptized along with his friend Robert… Read More

As the Lord may be graciously pleased to help us, I would ask your prayerful direction to the second epistle of Paul to the Thessalonians chapter two and verse 15. “Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.” (2nd Thessalonians 2:15) Paul in writing to the church at Thessalonica writes in his pastoral sense to a people whom he loves for… Read More

This is love, tenderly expressed, matchless, free, undeserved love – love that many waters cannot quench and that the floods cannot drown. Here creature-strength, creature-beauty, creature-goodness, and even creature vileness too, with all the roarings of hell, must all give place together, and Christ alone must be exalted. Matchless grace has made this poor filthy wretch comely in the Lord’s comeliness and beautiful in His beauty (Ezekiel 16:14). Though black in herself,… Read More

“Blessed are they that mourn; for they shall be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4) ——————– Not all kinds of mourners are here intended; for there is the sorrow of the world, which worketh death and produces nothing but sin, misery and rebellion against God. Some mourn because they cannot increase in riches, honours and pleasures; but there is no blessing promised to them. The mourners which God has pronounced blessed are such as mourn… Read More

“And they sung a new song, saying, THOU ART WORTHY to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for THOU WAST SLAIN, and THOU HAST REDEEMED US TO GOD BY THY BLOOD out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.” (Revelation 5:9) ——————– THE WORK OF REDEMPTION IS A GREAT WORK because of Who planned and purposed it. The Lord God determined to redeem a people for Himself… Read More

“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.” (Revelation 5:12) ——————– John saw the Lord Jesus Christ as the Lamb slain; as the Lamb in the midst of the throne; as the Lion prevailing; as the Root of David; as the exalted sovereign of all; and everlasting. What John saw concerning him is far beyond our full comprehension,… Read More

“A Psalm. O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.” (Psalm 98:1) ——————– To sing a new song of the marvelous things that Almighty God has done requires a new heart. The old heart of rebellion sees no beauty in the everlasting covenant, ordered in all things and sure (2 Samuel 23:5), but David… Read More

Matthew 27:15 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would. Matthew 27:16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas. Matthew 27:17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ? Matthew 27:18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him. Matthew 27:19… Read More

“Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” (1 Peter 1:5) ——————– This side of death, we shall never know that which God Almighty has kept us from.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness. (Matthew 23:27) Satan’s master plan is to get man religious without Christ. He would rather you be WHITEWASHED than WASHED WHITE in the blood of the Lamb. White washing will not save! I must be washed white in the BLOOD OF… Read More

“For he that is dead is freed from sin.” (Romans 6:7) ——————– The elect of God, as well as all others, are by nature dead; they are dead in sin, living without any spiritual life;, and to be carnally minded is death: they are without any affection for God, motion towards Him, delight in Him or in His service; and they are dead in law, being condemned in Adam, for judgment by… Read More

The sovereignty of God. What do we mean by this expression? We mean the supremacy of God, the kingship of God, the godhood of God. To say that God is sovereign is to declare that God is God.
